Kids take over MNH archives

To take place on November 25

Douglas primary school pupils will take over Manx National Heritage archives.

'Kids Take Over Day' is an annual event where museums across Britain are taken over by young people - 'Explore Your Archives' is an initiative by National Archives, aimed at engaging people with history in their local area.  

The Manx Museum is the first to combine the two - creating it's own event on November 25.  

Principle Clare Manser explains what the youngsters will be doing:
